Wine Review: The 2014 Sharecroppers Pinot Noir is unmistakably a New World wine. Although it is from Willamette Valley, is has plenty of indicators that would make you think otherwise. With notes of ripe raspberries, cloves, hints of cinnamon and cherry plums, and a finish that gives way to basil and graphite, the Sharecropper is the answer to California Pinot Noir. The finish has stretched out due to the ample fruit but has just the right amount of acidity to clean off any extra sweetness that this wine may carry. Overall, this is a consumer's Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed either on its own or paired with a nice blue cheese, aged cheddar, with bacon burger. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: The 2014 Sharecropper's is a vintage that will surely shock and amaze you. This Pinot Noir exudes bold dark fruit flavors and spice to please every palate. The Willamette Valley benefited from a warm growing season which made for relatively high sugar and phenolic ripeness, as well as an abundant crop. This vintage is a staff favorite; try a bottle tonight with grilled cedar plank salmon and it’s easy to see why.
